Good deep medium red. Brooding aromas of red berries, red cherry, minerals and sweet oak. Thick and lush but juicy, with lovely minerality contributing to the impression of grip. Wonderfully pure, sweet red fruit flavors. This, too, builds impressively toward the back and lingers impressively on the aftertaste. The finish features lush, suave tannins that coat the front teeth and incisors. A great 2001 Barolo.

The 2001 Barolo Sori Ginestra emerges with a bouquet redolent of crushed flowers, tobacco, spices and mint, all of which come together beautifully. The integration of fruit and oak is more harmonious than it is in the Gris. Even with all of the textural richness, the slightly forward aromatics suggest the 2001 is at or close to peak. There is plenty of muscle here, but I would prefer to enjoy the 2001 over the next few years. The downside risk to holding this wine further is just too great.

Pure crushed berries and plums in this wine with just a hint of wood and fresh mushrooms. Full-bodied and compacted, with loads of rich fruit and big velvety tannins. Gorgeous wine. Huge concentration, yet balanced. Greatest wine ever from here and the wine of the vintage. 200 cases imported.

Still young. Very good nose of tar and camphor. Slightly hot, but may have been my palate last night.

Well balanced and good acidity. Cherry flavor with some minerality. Needs at least 2 hr decant. Will try in another 3 to 5 years

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
